#10: Fat Joe Meets Local Government Budgeting

#9: Why We ❤ Instagram: Visualizing Community Engagement


Warren Kagarise, Communications Coordinator, City of Issaquah, WA

Our Take: ELGL loves social media, and we fully believe in its power to transform the way local government is viewed by the public. We focus most of our attention on effectively using Facebook and Twitter. In this article, we learned about visualizing community engagement through Instagram.

Warren highlights the City of Issaquah’s success with Instagram which has traveled worldwide. “Instagram is a gateway to a global audience; more than 70 percent of users hail from outside the United States. For us, likes have come from the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, and contacts in Issaquah’s sister city of Chefchaouen, Morocco.”

Fun Fact: ELGL has an Instagram account.
